One more thing to consider, althought Basjoos does have a CX body and tranny, he has a DX engine. He mentioned that he didn't notice a FE difference with the DX engine.

I imagine his cx engine was a bit fux0red, like the one I got,

Anyway, the one piece front end is a drag car type of thing made of fiberglass, it'd involve a ton of cost getting is rigged up but they def make them for the EG hatch.

Anyway, you'll do fine, don't worry.

Im not liking the sound of that statement. You mean that lean burn is so touchy that It may not work because the car is old? If it is just electrical, what would need to be replaced to make it work again?

It's so touchy it may not work because it forgot how to one day, and the funny thing is that you never really no, cuz a lot of times things will be messed up but it won't code.

I'm not really an expert, I'd just advise you to drive it and see what kinda mileage you get, and that'll be your best indication of how it's working.

Usually the o2 sensor will get lazy or something though.

Since this past friday when Ben (SVO) helped swap in an hf transmission, I have gone from a base of 37mpg to 44mpg. That is not trying, whereas before I got 43-44mpg driving less aggressive, and EOCing, I am hoping for around 50mpg with those same practices. We shall see!

Impressive! That's it, the only change was to an HF transmission? What engine do you have? Is it DPFI or MPFI? What ECU?

Yeah, Ben got it right. d15b1, dpfi, and I guess it is a pm5 ecu, though I'm not sure. Life is good with 5th gear. mpfi/head swap in future I hope!
